I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

Pros

good people and nice benefits,

Cons

People who can talk will survive in this company. People are not recognized for the work that is done

Advice to ManagementAdvice

get rid of the upper management. People with no credentials are being promoted to management

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    * many very dedicated and talanted individual contributors
    * able to work from home - although this does not apply across all organizations

    Cons

    * employee morale is extremely low ... and nothing from management seems to address this
    * expected to work all hours of the day and night due to global work force

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a better message for why we will not see the 5% pay cut reversed ... saying that there are other ways to motivate employees is ridiculous - how about executives & regular employees have the same incentive plan?

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    - Decent work/life balance
    - Ample opportunities to work from home
    - Some decent discounts for being an employee
    - Decent web-based training
    - Good people overall to work with, though with attrition through the roof, everywhere is going elsewhere!

    Cons

    - Pay is near the bottom of the pay band, lower than most companies by far
    - Pay freezes going on year 3
    - 5% company wide paycut
    - They WILL promote you and bill you for MORE to the client... and keep all that $ as you will not see a RAISE!
    - Worst vacation days policy (10 days) of which 6-8 days per year are forced vacation in Christmas timeframe
    - Employees are in silos, no career development
    - Yearly bonuses are meager at best, if at all existent
    - Every single fringe benefit done away with as HP does not know how to treat consultants & the consulting culture
    - Most normal benefits are reduced year-over-year
    - Allowing the shedding of talent with the ridiculous attrition rate
    - Overall current work situation borders on exploitation for some

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up! And if you are awake, then you are totally out of touch. The loss of talent will affect your business more in the long run and then you will wonder what went wrong and probably overreact by laying off 25% of your workforce!
